Ok, got it Mara, thanks!
Need to download kernel-source and place it in correct location.

P.S.
For now I am using r8188eu module, manually loaded. Its available in kernel-modules package but its a staging module, so performance or stability may not be up to the mark.

I created a mirror of this:

http://mirrors.aptalaska.net/slackware/slarm64/

Right now I'm pulling a dir list from http://dl.fail.pp.ua using lftp and only downloading new files, but if sndwvs would rather me use rsync of something, please let me know.

Anyway, I also added this:

http://mirrors.aptalaska.net/slackwa...schu-packages/

Which has a package with a kernel that boots on a raspberry pi 4 as well as the kernel-headers and kernel-source directories.

I also included a number of other of my own packages, which include the kernel modules and userspace for ZFS.

The readme.txt shows you how to get it all installed, and it's really nothing more than making and formatting partitions, extracting the slarm64 rootfs, then manually installing the kernel package. I can go from zero to a pi4 running slarm64 with ZFS in under 15 minutes.

I'm using this as a backup node. I attach a small external disk to my pie, then zfs send my file systems to it every few hours to have an offsite backup.

slarm64 (aarch64 unofficial slackware)

That sounds great.

I was wondering in what usage you see the more benefits to have that running instead of official Slackware-arm?

Thanks akschu for using slarm64 and for the mirror.
if itís more convenient for you to use rsync, itís better to use it.
add a mirror to slackpkg

rsync would be best. Please contact me at:

echo "schu/schu;net" | sed 's/\//@/' | sed 's/;/./'

Regarding rsync access.

Thanks,

Thanks.

Hi aaditya,
no it's not worth the vanilla core.
